Article Body:

We're not shocked by the celebrity photos that show protruding hipbones, bony breastplates, countable ribs, and collarbones practically piercing through the flesh of their shoulders. it's normal to us now. it is the look we're alleged to achieve.

The media sounds a loud alarm over the celebrities who get too thin. then they are going right showing us image after image of the exact same women as beauty icons. It's insane.

*The hottest boutique in l. a. , catering to the celebs , carries only sizes 0-8. 

*The average American women wears a size 12 or 14. 

*The usual waist size for a celebrity's pair of jeans is 28. 

*The average woman wears a size 34 jean.

In a recent celebrity magazine, the subsequent heights and weights were listed for five well-known performers:

*Terri Hatcher 5-6, 109 pounds

*Kate Bosworth 5-7, 107 pounds

*Lindsey Lohan 5-5, 102 pounds

*Victoria Beckham 5-6, 105 pounds

*Joan Allen 5-10, 110 pounds

All are severely underweight. this is often starvation imagery. Anorexic-type bodies regularly presented because the beauty ideal. 

Today's human body is predicted to be slim, trim, lean. Tight, toned muscles. Six-pack abs. Hard bodies. seems like an outline of a adult male body doesn't it? the sole feminine characteristic remaining on today's "perfect woman": fake, plastic breasts. the important ones disappear when a lady is underweight. 

The ideal human body seems like a young, very thin, muscular prepubescent boy with large breasts. this is often where 100 years of media brainwashing has left us. "Brainwashing" looks like too strong a term until you think about that the majority females see 400 to 700 media-generated images of thin women every single day.

Rounded bellies, padded hips, curvy thighs. These are "problem areas" to be worked on. actually , they're beautiful, natural qualities of a healthy human body .

It's time we define our own style. Make our own rules. Turn our backs on the media and embrace the gorgeous bodies we were been born with. it is time to measure with grace and wonder rather than self-hate and struggle.

Too many folks have learned to dislike our own bodies: 

*53% of 13 year-old girls,

*78% of 17 year-old girls, and

*80% of adult women spend a day disliking the sole bodies we'll ever have.

How a few world where all body types are appreciated…

*Where naturally thin bodies are considered beautiful.

*Where naturally curvaceous bodies are considered beautiful.

*Where the skinny aren't trying to urge plump.

*And the curvy aren't trying to urge skinny.

Let's sleep in a world where the bodies we were born with are the simplest , most beautiful bodies we could each have. 

How to do that? 

*Stop buying from companies who advertise their products with starvation imagery. 

*Don't attend movies that star emaciated actresses.

*Make your voice heard. Email or write companies to complain about their irresponsible imagery.

*Swear off TV shows, fashion magazines, and other media that depict only thin women. (Just 5% of yank women are naturally underweight. Among the actresses on television…it's 87%.)

*Reinvent your sense of female beauty with images of all kinds of girls . Old art is one among the simplest choices. leave of your thanks to view old paintings and sculptures to assist get you started.

*Reeducate your eyes to understand the natural, average human body .

*Don't mention your own weight loss or gain and do not discuss others' bodies therein way.
